About the Lawsuit
Campbell and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On May 18, 2018, the Company disclosed disappointing financial results, for the third straight quarter, including the poor performance of its Campbell Fresh division that forced it to take a $619 million pre-tax non-cash impairment charge, a $19 million quarterly loss for the division, further revisions to its fiscal year 2018 earnings guidance, and that the Company’s CEO was stepping down immediately.
On this news, the price of Campbell’s shares plummeted over 12% to close at $34.37 per share on May 18, 2018.
